Now excuse me while I blast Dragonforce
yeah exactly. but what i noticed is sometimes metalheads won't admit it but say if someone liked a lot of deathcore bands or mainstream metal bands, other metalheads won't take their opinions seriously because they don't have much "metal credibility."
for example say i only listened to deathcore and i said Cannibal Corpse sucks, i would get a lot of shit for it and people would think my opinion didn't matter because i have "shit music taste." if i listened to a lot of death metal like Dying Fetus, Suffocation, Immolation, Nile, etc, and said Cannibal Corpse sucks, my opinion would be MUCH more respected than the other situation.
